Riverfront Greenway Trail Reviews

This was a well maintained, safe, and scenic trail. It is paved with concrete; wide enough for plenty of people. The day I walked, it was only me. There are also dirt trails coming off the concrete path. They are safe, easy to walk. Although the concrete trail is about 2.4 miles, I made a 7.4 mile walk by taking some of the extra dirt paths, the loop, and walking back to my starting point (instead of getting picked up at the end of the trail.)

There are places to sit, pic nic, and fish.

Great for jogging, walking, or biking. Very nice!

Walked this trail for the first time today, and was pleasantly surprised at how well this trail is maintained and how clean and well kept it is. We plan to go walk this trail again in the morning. We seen lots of wildlife and even walked up on a beautiful Doe! We also saw a cute little Oak snake who let us take a picture of him, then he scurried off on his way. Definitely will be planning many more enjoyable walks on this trail. :-)
